Questo bellissimo Trattato della pittura fu pubblicato postumo attingendo a una copia manoscritta. Dunque non conosciamo la versione originale del prezioso manuale di Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519). La versione qui riprodotta si riferisce al Codex Urbinas Latinus 1270, collocato presso la Biblioteca apostolica vaticana, e comprende oltre duecentoventi disegni originali a corredo dell’opera. All’interno, più di novecento dettagliati insegnamenti su come raffigurare la prospettiva, le ombre e le luci, i diversi movimenti dell’uomo e i profili degli alberi, dei monti e delle nuvole. Leonardo Da Vinci osserva e misura il mondo coi propri occhi e stabilisce le più precise regole della sua raffigurazione. L’auspicio rivolto al lettore di questo Trattato è che la comprensione dei numerosi suggerimenti del Maestro possa condurre a una più attenta osservazione della Natura e del modo attraverso il quale siamo abituati a percepirla, prendendone le distanze, confrontandoci con essa.
Edwin George Lutz published this book in 1913 with Dodd, Mead and Company publishers. This is really a remarkable book in wich line is made a good reason form form. The youngest child may grasp the magic progress of this way of working and he will draw the picture naturally and well. Instructions are very brief, for the key lines of each object tell their own story and the child is entranced by the results soon gained. There is no stupid tracing in this book, for tracing accomplishes at most only a little muscular control.
The book provides a step-by-step system and fixes the object in memory and develops naturally a physical skill and a memorized knowledge of proportion and form. Foreshortening and perspective, that bugbears to young artists, are overcome by the simplest progressive examples. Remembering the key line offers the way to the completed object. There are hundreds of pictures to draw and all are those most fascinating to the child, who is thrilled by the “magic” that makes drawing easy and delightfully interesting. “Just remember the key line, that’s all”.
